Different Types of Content Offered on OnlyFans

You might think OnlyFans offers only adult content. If so, think again. While the platform provides plenty of explicit photos and videos, you can also make money with non-explicit content.

For starters, you can use OnlyFans to promote PDFs and ebooks on various topics. For instance, if you’re a fitness trainer, you can sell pamphlets on the platform about at-home workouts. OnlyFans is also useful for selling print books, artwork, and more of your own original physical or digital products to subscribers.

Thinking beyond content topics, OnlyFans supports four content types:

  • videos
  • photos
  • direct messages
  • status updates

As with most other social platforms, videos and photos are the most popular types of content on OnlyFans, particularly adult content.

What Type of Content Sells Best on OnlyFans?

Whether you want to offer explicit or non-explicit content, videos are the biggest sellers. These can include vlogs, behind-the-scenes footage, livestreams, and daily life videos. Photographs are the next most popular type of content. Exclusive content for which you charge extra is always popular with both creators and fans.

The 14 Best and Most Profitable OnlyFans Adult Content Ideas

Coming up blank with ideas for adult OnlyFans content? Consider these suggestions, which have made money for others:

  • Livestreams. The immediacy of a livestream, whether you’re preparing for bedtime, answering questions, or sharing a workout routine, creates a solid bond with fans and will encourage them to come back again and again.
  • Nude or lingerie photos. This is a no-brainer!
  • Role-play content. Use your acting skills to interact with fans in a role of your or their choosing: a girlfriend or boyfriend, a sexy librarian, a princess locked in a castle…
  • Cosplay images and video. Fans with specific cosplay interests are usually eager to engage with those providing content tailored to their likes. If you already have cosplay outfits and props, here’s your chance to monetize them. 
  • Feet images. Foot fetishes are surprisingly common, so put your toes and ankles to work!
  • Other fetish content. Some love watching naked people eat; others are aroused by images of women with body hair. Explore fetishes you might never have previously considered.
  • Couples play. Did you know that many couples seek out erotic content featuring other couples? Well, they do, so if you have a significant other, consider doubling up for photo shoots, videos, and other content.
  • Q&As. You can allow fans to ask personal questions or for sex or relationship advice. Q&As can be conducted via livestream, voice chat, or text.
  • Exclusive and PPV (pay-per-view) content. Personal messages, custom videos, and shoutouts are among the types of exclusive content you can charge extra for.
  • Behind-the-scenes content. Photos and footage showing what goes on during the making of explicit videos and photo shoots engage viewers by making them feel in the know. They can also be cost-effective, as they’re from shoots you’ve already completed. Other behind-the-scenes content includes footage of your day-to-day activities.
  • Daily vlogs. Whether it’s footage of your morning routine or a wrap-up of the day’s events, vlogs have proven to be quite popular among fans.
  • Sensual ASMR. Appeal to those who are turned on more by sounds than images with soft, sensuous audio content such as whispered stories, soft moans, and kissing sounds.
  • Erotic storytelling. Like ASMR, this appeals to those who prefer aural to visual stimulation.
  • Sensual yoga or dance. These can be videos or livestreams

11 Profitable and Non-explicit OnlyFans Content Ideas


You don’t have to create explicit content to make money on OnlyFans. Below are a few non-explicit content suggestions:


  • Cosplay. While cosplay content can be explicit, it doesn’t have to be. Many people who cosplay superheroes or fantasy figures enjoy engaging with others who do the same in a nonsexual manner.
  • Lingerie reviews. If you don’t want to model sexy undies, you can review them instead, displaying and talking about your favorites.
  • Yoga and other fitness videos. You can lead live sessions or provide videos. These also provide you the opportunity to sell instructional ebooks, fitness tips, and other related content.
  • Guided meditations. Again, these can be in the form of daily vlogs or produced videos.
  • Dancing videos. Some fans will want to dance along; others will simply enjoy watching.
  • Cooking and recipes. Everybody eats, which means there’s a broad potential audience for cooking livestreams, unique recipes, cookware reviews, and the like.
  • Art and music. In addition to showing off the finished product, use OnlyFans to share behind-the-scenes footage and sell your unique works.
  • DIY. Whether it’s how to build furniture, gardening tips, or home tours, DIY videos and livestreams appeal to fans with similar interests.
  • Beauty tutorials and reviews. Who doesn’t love a good before and after?
  • Pet content. This can range from Q&As about dog training to videos of you romping with your pets. 
  • Life coaching. Once you build a bond with fans via motivational videos and live Q&As, you can expand to sell one-on-one personal coaching, ebooks, and more.

Popular Skills and Art on OnlyFans

Photography, painting and sketching, and yoga and gym training are currently the most popular non-explicit skills on OnlyFans. You can easily showcase these skills with videos, livestreams, and images. Then, you can expand to sell your original and custom artworks, instruction guides, and personalized training plans.

What You Need to Create OnlyFans Content

A smartphone or computer with a camera is essential for creating OnlyFans photos and videos. Also essential is a well-lit space for shooting and editing apps or software.

To ensure that your content is visually appealing enough to grow your audience, you might want to invest in professional equipment such as a ring light or a high-resolution camera. You certainly don’t need that gear to start out, however. You can find out more about equipment here.

How Much Does Creating Content on OnlyFans Cost?

Since you probably already own a smartphone or a computer, your start-up costs will be low. As you begin attracting fans and become more comfortable with OnlyFans, you might want to invest some of your earnings in editing software, professional recording gear, props, or costumes so that you can better compete with other content producers and gain more subscribers.

Taking Your OnlyFans Content to the Next Level

Choosing the type of content to create is key, but it’s only the first step. To make the most from OnlyFans, you need to ensure that your content is polished enough to attract followers and that you post content consistently. Promoting yourself is also important. For extra money, consider PPV content. The Supercreator CRM for OnlyFans offers analytics and other smart tools to handle the nitty-gritty and optimize the results of your work. These include templates and scripts for messages, fan insights so that you can more profitably tailor content and pricing for individuals, and a bump messaging application so that you increase engagement with fans you’ve not interacted with recently. Such tools let you focus on what you do best: creating content that followers love.

Whether you decide to create videos or photos, adult or non-explicit content, the Supercreator management platform can ensure that you make the most money possible from your content by helping you manage your pages, enhancing chats, making sure you price your exclusive content correctly, and using data to identify new revenue opportunities.
